Rocky Mountain’s new Slayer is ready to lay waste to technical trails with 7 inches of travel and a chassis that’s light enough to climb. The RSD Wildcat is a small Canadian company’s first full-suspension build and has plenty of promise. And, the Otso Voytek is one of the lightest fat bikes we’ve ever tested.
